HOLDING ABSENCE have released their first new music of 2023 in the form of captivating new single ‘A Crooked Melody’. Accompanied by a beautifully stylised video that was directed by Lewis Cater, ‘A Crooked Melody’ is an exceptional example of HOLDING ABSENCE’s keen ability to craft insatiably catchy songs that serve as a vessel for poignantly relatable lyrics.
Frontman Lucas Woodland comments “A Crooked Melody is simply a song about denial. It’s the lie we tell ourselves every night to help us sleep, but deep down we know the truth. The big difference between a crooked melody and a lie, however, is that it’s sweet, enchanting and easier to swallow.”
